"Leslie Lynch, 52, of Glastonbury, Conn., had $30,000 in her 401(k) retirement account when she lost her $65,000-a-year job last year at an insurance company. She'd worked there 28 years. She's depleted her retirement savings trying to stay afloat."

Let's get this straight: 28 YEARS of continuous employment; $30k in retirement savings.

Mind blown.
